    i have been talking with drew for a while about getting some tuna.
    we finally had the chance to fish together.
    he came down with greg,
    and we headed out about 330am.
    the tuna bite has be just ok.
    some days ok some days, better.

    we took off from cape may, on the riskey business with captain kobey
    anything to get a tuna for him.
    we hit a scallop boat.
    did some jigging.
    not much going on.
    we took a little ride south.
    and gave the JPR trolling rods a try.

    we had a better day than most of the boats around.
    went 3 for 6 on yellows
    and 1 for 1 on bluefin.
    got drew his first tuna
    and had some sushi to take home..
    a great day.

    Hey Paul, Thanks a bunch for the opportunity. Had a real blast! My first Tuna a Bluefin Awesome! And to catch it on a JPR stand up was even better! We gotta get out again! I can only imagine what a triple digit is going to feel like! It'll feel even better hangin on that custom when it's done:)! You talk to Dom yet about Oct?

    Paul forgot to mention, we were bullshitting in the cockpit bout jigging when that Bluefin sounded off. That line sounded like a shotgun blasting through the outrigger! I think I jumped right outta my ugly ass crocks! Too bad we couldn't hook up with the jigs, I really wanted to put the bends on the OTI 400g Paul hooked me up with a couple weeks ago :)
